eling at Government expense to
that city. The SS Cristobal, how-
ever, has been carrying them be-
tween Cristobal and New Orleans
for a number of years.
In addition to the one trip to New
Orleans and back, there will be 24
charter flights between Miami and
Tocumen. Proposals for next year's
charter flight plan are being studied
by both Braniff and Pan American
World Airways. A decision on
which company will take the Canal
proposal will be made in October.
According to the present sched-
ule, a DC-8 jet liner will leave
Tocumen May 29, 1973, at 8:30
a.m. for New Orleans, arriving at
11:45 a.m. The return trip will
leave New Orleans August 21 at
5:30 p.m. arriving at Tocumen at
8:45 p.m.
The other special flights have
been scheduled to depart from the
Isthmus for Miami at 9 a.m. with
the return flight leaving Miami at
7:30 p.m.
Five planes will depart from
the Isthmus for Miami in May,
three in June, two in July and two
in August. Southbound from
Miami, there will be one in June,
five in July, and five in August.
Employees and their dependents
traveling at their own expense will
be accepted on all flights on a
space available basis. Those plan-
ning home leave next summer and
others going at their own expense
who would like to travel on the
charter flights will be requested to
submit their applications in the
near future.
The SS Cristobal which has been
operating as a 12 passenger
freighter since March 23, 1971,
will carry employees traveling at
their own expense to and from New
Orleans on a space available basis.
Assignment to the ship will be
made in the order that the Trans-
portation Branch receives the Ter-
mination of Service or Request for
Leave of Absence. These requests
will be processed by the Transpor-
tation Branch 2 months before
departure from the Canal Zone.
Those preferring to travel by
ship who cannot be accommodated
on the SS Cristobal will be fur-
nished a list of the local steam-
ship agents by the Transportation
Branch so that they can arrange for
steamship travel.
Following is the tentative sched-
ule for the next summer charter
flights between the Isthmus and
Miami for Panama Canal employ-
ees and dependents. The Cristobal
schedule is on page 4.

A team of 17 workmen from the

a dirty but important job that must
be done from time to time at
Madden Dam-the overhaul of one
of the four drum gates.
The 4- to 5-week project, which
has been designated the project of
the month of September for the
Engineering and Construction Bu-
reau, is being carried out on drum
gate No. 4, on the northern end of
the dam. Almost every year one
drum gate gets overhauled.
When No. 4 was last overhauled,
the work included the installation
of a 2-foot lip to the top of the
cylindrically shaped drums, thereby
increasing the capacity of Madden
Lake and the amount of water the
dam can hold back. In so doing,
the lake is better able to provide

water for operation of the locks
and for maintaining adequate depth
for navigation of the Canal through
the long dry season. It also aided
a secondary function of the dam,
that of producing hydroelectric
As a flood control device, the
900-foot concrete dam is well able
to cope with the water that surges
down from the Chagres River dur-
ing rainy season. The drum gates
are raised as the lake climbs until
the lake reaches a level of 250 feet,
which represents 29 billion cubic
feet of water, almost a quarter of
the Canal's total needs for a year.
If heavy rains pose a dangerous
threat of flooding, the drum gates
can be lowered to allow water to
pour over the top and drop the lake
In general, drum gates are over-
hauled much earlier in the year, in
April or May, when the water is
well below the tops of the drum
gates. The unusually dry rainy
season this year, however, has
allowed the work to be done in
September, the latest on record.
Before the actual overhaul can
begin, careful preparations must
be made so that workmen have safe
and convenient access to the drum
gates. To provide this, men are
lowered over the edge of the 220-
foot high dam in boatswain's chairs
to install tubular metal scaffolding
or staging, with ladders extending
from the top of the dam down to

ing the faculty of the Canal Zone
College. Lesser has had numerous
articles published in professional
business education periodicals. He
has also been an active member of
the American Business Communi-

In the article, Lesser reviewed
some tested procedures for teach-
ing the first days of shorthand
classes. He stressed the importance
of proper mind set for the students
and advocated permissiveness in
errors in the beginning shorthand
lessons and emphasized the need
for proportional outlines in short-
hand writing.

addressees promptly:
Use complete addresses includ-

numbers, and ZIP Codes on all
mailings to insure accuracy of dis-
tribution and delivery.
Use First-Class postage on
Christmas cards. Even though the
single piece rate for Third-Class
artment is the same as the First-Class rate,
ire with there are still advantages in sending
greeting cards weighing more than
1 ounce by First-Class.
Use insurance, registry, certified
mail, airmail, special delivery and
special handling for protection and
Enclose a slip of paper in each
parcel listing the contents and the
name and address of mailer and

musical tale of California Gold
Rush days' opens at the Ancon
Theater Guild September 28 with
a cast of 39 persons, some new to
the local stage and other familiar
to Canal Zone theatergoers.

production, Carl Chapman is the
musical director and Ann Organ is
the choreographer.

long, which are lined with rubber

While some workmen are ex-
tracting old seals and installing
new ones, other men are cleaning
off the two end plates against
which the drum gates ride up and
down. Buffing, scraping and gen-
erally cleaning the entire flat sur-
face of each plate is necessary for
the drum gates to be lowered and
raised smoothly.
Old grease must be taken off
moving parts and fresh grease ap-
plied to prevent corrosion. And,
finally, black paint is applied to
the outside of the drum gates to
retard the formation of rust.

A "run" of newly-installed seals is
examined by Maintenance Division
machinist William Millar. The seals
are made of brass with rubber
attached to each segment to pro-

Merecido Homenaje

A Sylvester Callender

Sylvester D. Callender
Recientemente se le rindi6 un
homenaje de simpatia a uno de los
empleados del Canal de PanamA
que mas se han preocupado por el
bienestar de la comunidad y de
todos los que de una u otra manera
tienen que relacionarse con 61: Syl-
vester D. Callender, Coordinador
de Relaciones de las Comunidades
Latinoamericanas en la Oficina del
Gobernador de la Zona del Canal.
El homenaje consisti6 en una
cena bailable que tuvo lugar en el
Breaker's Club de Coco Solo. Asis-
tieron centenares de personas y dis-
tinguidas personalidades entire las
que se encontraban el Honorable
C6nsul General de Jamaica en Pa-
namA, Sr. Nathan Reid y Joseph

bano, S.A., companiia que actual-
mente construye la Urbanizaci6n

vincia de Col6n, proyecto patroci-
nado por la Uni6n de Empleados

nalidades de Col6n, de la ciudad

cal 900 y sus sefioras, los de mu-
chas entidades a las que pertenece

dos del Local 900, en pleno, quie-
nes fueron los que patrocinaron el
El acto se inici6 con ]a invoca-
ci6n, que estuvo a cargo de la Srta.
Florence Springer. Inmediatamen-
te Pablo Kirven, dio la bienvenida
a los asistentes y present a Leo-
poldo T. Douglas, quien habl6 a

nombre del president del comit6
organizador del homenaje Ray-
mond R. Simpson.
El orador principal fue Henry
L. Rose, quien destac6 la persona-
lidad de Callender, quien en todo
moment ha tratado de servir a la
comunidad, desde los primeros y
dificiles dias de los afios 1920, has-
ta el moment actual y que siem-
pre ha sabido enfrentar los proble-
mas con tacto y con una actitud
positive, al extreme de que todos
los miembros de la comunidad se
han acostumbrado a buscar a Cal-
lender en los mementos de duda o
perplejidad. Rose dijo que los em-
pleados del Canal se han acostum-
brado a ver en Callender al amigo
que siempre les tiende la mano en
el moment oportuno y se olvida
de sus propios problems por ayu-
dar a los demas.
Seguidamente, Clement Moses
entreg6 a Callender un pergamino
en que se hace constar sus grandes
servicios no s6lo a los servidores
del Canal de PanamA, sino a todos
los que por un motive u otro tienen
que tratar con 61.
La Srta. Lillian Burgess entreg6
a Callender un bello regal con-
sistente en un juego de prendedor
de corbata v mancuernas de oro

por todo el escalaf6n, hasta que en
1948, se le encarg6 de organizer el
viejo Clubhouse del Pacifico, situa-
do donde hoy queda la Plaza
Shaler y se le nombr6 gerente del
mismo. Alli fue donde Callender
adquiri6 ese don de gentes que lo
distingue, pues le toc6 tratar con
toda clase de personas, tanto de la
Zona del Canal como de PanamA,
pues estaba situado muy cerca de

Despu6s que las preparaciones
terminan, se comienza rApidamen-

principles tareas, relacionadas con
el reacondicionamiento, es el reem-
plazo de los sellos oxidados o gas-
tados por otros nuevos, para evitar
la p6rdida de agua por las puertas
de tambor. Los sellos consistent en

visi6n de Abastos y en 1962, el
Gobernador Robert J. Fleming lo
coloc6 dentro de su personal ejecu-
tivo, en ia alta posici6n que ha ocu-
pado hasta el dia de hoy.
Servidor por antonomasia de los
clemas, Callender ha organizado
numerosas entidades de servicio so-
cial y de ayuda mutua y cooperati-
vista. Es actualmente president de
la Cooperativa Federal de Crdditos
de Balboa, de la Asociaci6n de Be-
neficios por Muerte de Empleados
del Canal de Panamni y de la Co-
operativa de Consumo Local 900,
cuyo magnifico supermercado si-
tuado en la Avenida Justo Arose-
mena de la ciudad de Panami, ha
sido uno de los proyectos que con
mas carifio ha impulsado Callender
en toda su vida. Es ex president
del Movimiento Internacional Es-
cultista en la Zona del Canal, fun-
dador y ex president del Club de
Fotografia del Pacifico y presiden-
te del Consejo Directivo de la
Guarderia Infantil de Pedro Mi-
guel. Ademais, es tesorero del Lo-
cal 900, Sindicato de Empleados
del Canal de Panamat v de la Enti-
dad de Muchachas Cuias Interna-
cionales de la Zona del Canal. Per-
tenece al Consejo Directivo del
Fondo Unido de la Zona del Canal
y a otras muchas entidades de bie-
nestar social.
Por todas esas razones, alguien
ha dicho con much tino que Syl-
vester D. Callender es estimado,
apreciado y buscado por muchas
personas de ambos lados del Ist-
mo, tanto de Panama como de la
Zona del Canal, para quienes Cal-
lender es el hombre indispensable
por todas las ocasiones, las buenas
y las malas.
El homenaje a Callender ha sido
considerado como el event social
de 1972 en las comunidades lati-
noamericanas de la Zona del Canal
y su organizaci6n estuvo a cargo
de un comit6 presidido por Ray-
mond R. Simpson e integrado por
Saturnin C. Maug6, como tesorero
y por Albert Browne como secre-
tario. Los demais miembros del co-
